I'm not exactly sure where this would go, so I figured it would be safe to stick it here in the Pit. Anyways, to the question. I just made a video on a Kodak digital camera, and I'm actually surprised with the quality of the audio due to my previous camera's terrible mic. I want to upload this video somewhere since you can actually hear what's going on, the only problem is I don't want to wait for a 160 mb file to upload to an already busy server. My video is in .mov format, what formats can I convert it to which will make the file smaller but will not compromise the sound quality?

I know, but I'm looking for a format that will minimize the quality loss.

If you're posting it on YouTube, just convert it to .mp4, which should keep the quality and will reduce the dimensions of the video to 320x240 (aka YouTube size), which will greatly lower the file size.

.AVI or .mp4 is probably the most popular then.

Auto GK is a good, free video converter for converting to .avi. You can choose the output filesize, audio quality, audio format, resolution, etc. You can choose to keep the original audio format (if it's AC3, DTS, or MPA) if you wish, or convert it to mp3. You can choose the bitrate (quality, higher bitrate = higher quality but bigger size) if you convert to mp3.


Here's the link for auto gk. I use it and recommend it for conversions to .AVI. Just go to the downloads page and get the latest non beta (stable) version.

Hope this makes sense.
Feel free to ask any questions.


---EDIT---

^Yeah if you're posting it to a streaming video site like youtube, they will often automatically convert it to an .flv or .mp4 and reduce the filesize. However, you will still have to upload the full video yourself unless you convert it before.
